Black Diamond Serac Crampons

Built for the variable, moderate terrain of classic mountaineering routes in places like the Tetons, the Alps and the Cascades, the Black Diamond Serac Crampon is a lightweight, 12-point crampon. The Serac's redesigned stainless steel construction incorporates a strong, yet light design with rocker in the front rail to accommodate modern mountain boots. Horizontal frontpoints provide secure bite in icy steps, while the classic secondary points and substantial rear points offer stability on descents and low-angle terrain.

I used these on Mt. Adams and in the Catskills this past winter in conjunction with a pair of GARMONT Men's Momentum Snow GTX Winter Boots and had no issues (I have the universal strap on type). I was wearing a size 11 and the regular bar was long enough. I haven't used them extensively but I liked they the way they peformed.

I have rented these crampons on past climbs and finally decided to buy a pair. I've found that once they are on, I don't have to be readjusting them during the climb.

Different Types of Crampons

Crampons vary based on material (steel, stainless steel or aluminum), number of points, and the binding system. Selecting the right crampon depends on your intended use: hiking and snow travel, general mountaineering or technical climbing.

General Mountaineering Crampons

General Mountaineering Crampons

On the standard routes of Rainier, McKinley, Aconcagua, and Everest steel or stainless steel crampons are best. Although aluminum crampons are appealing because of their lighter weight, they lack durability and do not handle rock and ice well.  Select a crampon with 10-12 points for these types of climbs. These crampons will have a strap-on or hybrid (clip) binding system.

Guide Tip: Guide Tip Climbers with bigger feet, size 11 boots or larger, should go with 12-point crampons. The 12-point crampon has a longer toe-piece, allowing for more even distribution of contact points throughout the sole of the boot and providing more length in the front points.  Bigger boots will require longer, extended bars, which are available for most crampons.
